    This thing took me forever to make. The embroidery was an hour, the binding around the neck was a pain to do and my tension on my machine was off when I started quilting so I got frustrated and just started scribbling with the machine. I'm out of the baby bib business! I quit.

    That is really cute! But I feel your pain. I cut out several bibs thinking this will be quick and easy. A root canal would have been more fun, I absolutely hated making them. I did find a better bib pattern on this site, making a yoke and attaching a wash cloth - those I enjoy doing!

    It is just darling. So sorry it troubled you, but just think of all the drool it will catch from some sweet baby! Don't give up, just take a deep breath, relax, have a cup of something soothing, and start again another time.
    Blessings.

    Bib is very cute. Working on all that detail on something is difficult. Try another, maybe do less quilting.

    I can understand your frustration . . . I think we all have had a project like this. BUT, your bib is so cute!

    Your bib looks great. For the next time, the very simplest bib is to take a washcloth, cut a U about 1 1'2' wide by 2 1/2' deep in the top centre of the washcloth for the neckline and bind it with one piece of binding (30"or so) leaving the tails of the binding long enough to be the ties (about 12") of the bib). You can use a fancy stitch to anchor the binding around the neck or just use a straight stitch along the tie, around the neck and up the other tie in one continuous line. These bibs can be made to use a mealtime and then I just take them and as they are a washcloth, wet them and wash up baby and throw it in the wash. I make every new arrival a pile of these. Easy and practical but not as cute as your bunny!
